I am a wife and mother of twin girls. My husband, Bill, is a financial advisor with Ausdal Financial Partners in Peoria, IL. We are both very fortunate to be very passionate about our careers. I am an Assistant Professor in the Education Department at Eureka College in the Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) Program. I teach a variety of Education, Kinesiology, Health, and Interdisciplinary courses with my main focus on Methods of Teaching courses. My daughters, Maggie and Jamie, are each unique and talented in their own ways. Jamie is a typically developing child who displays great care and concern for others and a vivid imagination. Maggie is developing at a slower rate due to a rare neurological disability called Angelman Syndrome. She is very curious and her strong-will serves her well as most everything comes with extra challenges for her. The four of us have been joined together as a family - all for one and one for all! We focus on the journey and keep our eyes on the goal of making this world a little better.
